Back To Winning

Rafa Nadal has cut his title drought and returned to winning.

Last weekend he won the Monte Carlo Masters tournament for the sixth time in a row.

Reading about his win got me to thinking about the quest to win.

Is winning everything?

In professional sport I guess the matter of winning is clear.

But in life?

What is the matter/substance of winning in life? There are no tournaments in life, are there?

Many posts ago I wrote here, after my India sojourn, that I was OK with not achieving/winning everything I set out to do so many many moons ago.

But it is not that clear cut. Is it?

Every now and then I want to believe that there is time even as the goal line grows more distant.

Perhaps I have forgotten how to win, or worse, what to win.

I sure enjoy your blog. And I think your line in your profile, where it asks about "interests", and your interest is "finding other interests" is wonderfully is your blog. Just a thank you.
